    The Catalina 320 is an exciting design that successfully combines the best modern features and construction with Catalina’s hallmark comfort and value. 

    Based on a high performance and optimized hull design, the 320 is light on the helm and tracks well under sail or power.  Motion and heeling are gentle and predictable.  The 320 performs well in a variety of conditions.  Racing skippers will enjoy the turn of speed and cruisers will appreciate the additional distance covered in a day’s passage. 

    Carrying the deck beam well aft created space for an exceptionally large cockpit.  The wide coamings and ergonomically correct seats and backs are important features when considering the cockpit is where we spend our time when onboard.  The weather decks are wide with molded-in nonskid and bulkwards, giving easy, sure access to the foredeck and standard below deck anchor windlass.  Other important features of the deck include stout aluminum framed opening deck hatches and ball bearing mainsheet traveler system. 

    The rigging and spar systems are engineered for performance and durability.  The fore and aft lowers with intermediate and upper shrouds make the rig very secure and easy to keep in tune.  A rigid adjustable boom vang is standard.

    Speed and cockpit space did not mean compromise in accommodations.  The unique interior is beautiful finished in a rich combination of teak, ash and maple hardwoods complementing the beige textured fiberglass overhead and full hull liner.  The interior fabrics match perfectly and give the feel of a much larger sailing yacht.

    Attention to detail like the custom molded galley counters with integral back splashed and fiddles, three separate lighting circuits in the main cabin, removable panels in the forward bulkhead, and a cedar paneled hanging locker set the 320 apart from the ordinary.  Attention in details in the structural, engine, plumbing, and electrical systems are less visible but receive careful attention on the 320.

    The one-piece molded fiberglass sub-sole grid system is rigid, strong, and requires no maintenance.  The engine installation is fully accessible by removing the fore and aft insulated covers.  Related filters and valves are in a mechanical locker aft of the engine and are logically arranged. 

    Once you inspect the 320 you will be impressed.

    Vessel Walkthrough



    The 72" berth sleeps two adults and measures 70" across at the head.  At the foot of the berth is a 10" deep shelf. Two drawers are under the berth along with two storage lockers.  Overhead is an 18" X 20" Bomar hatch with screen and canvas cover. Separating the forward cabin from the salon is a folding wood privacy door.


    Teak and holly sole runs throughout the vessel and all windows have drop down screens.  The opening ports also have screens. The starboard settee is 6'3" while the portside settee is "L" shaped and runs 6'9".  With the regular dinette table in place the starboard settee can convert to a double berth. Above each berth is a small book storage area and additional storage is behind the back rests and under the seats. There is also a 9" wide storage shelf above each settee. There are three windows and four opening ports in the salon.  Above is a 17" X 17 " Bomar hatch with screen and canvas cover.  Just aft of the port settee is the navigator station that measures 25" wide by 32" long.  Excellent lighting and ventilation throughout the cabin.    


    The galley is located just aft of the navigation station on the port side and extends on the aft side to the companionway steps.  It is a modified "U" shape with the forward portion extending on an angle to the salon walkway.


    The head is directly aft of the dinette on the starboard side and has 6'2" headroom.
